I love finding new stores that are tres cool in our city--whether they be record stores to coffee shops. List your favorites and you just might see me visiting em! :)

Here's my favorites:

-Brave New World Music Store[in Oakland, located near Groceria Merte or however you spell it]
-Slackers Everything Store[located right next to the Bee Hive on the Southside on E. Carson street]
-The BeeHive Coffee Shop[located in Southside on E. Carson street]
-THE CARNEGIE LIBRARY!
-Kiva Han Coffee Shop[located across the street from the museum in Oakland on the corner]
-Lulu's Noodles Chinese Restraunt [located on the same street as Kiva Han, best General Tso's chicken ever]

It is, in fact, the same place.   :)

You should all check out Sugar, which is a great store at 3703 Butler Street in Lawrenceville (past the Strip District) which has a lot of really awesome clothing and stuff including wares from some local crafty people.  It's so cool!!  And don't forget The Big Idea zine shop, at Liberty and Millvale in Bloomfield (next to the Dog and Burger).

Hey, I see this is a post for the best stores in Pittsburgh, so I offer up a question to you guys...
Where are some really cool fabric stores?
I live about 40 minutes away so I am up there a lot. I am wanting to find some fabric stores that have some retro, random or just plain something I wouldn't find anywhere else.

Also, I absolutely LOVE The Beehive! The atmosphere is fabulous!
